Ladbrokes Tip: Sandown Guineas winners often come off a Carbine Club Stakes run on Derby Day
The Sandown Guineas is a Group 2 feature race held at Sandown’s Ladbrokes Park in mid-November at the tail end of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
The meeting runs on the second Saturday of the month after the Melbourne Cup Carnival finishes up the week before with Emirates Stakes Day at Flemington.
Sandown Guineas Day is headlined by two Group 2 races including the Zipping Classic (2400m) for stayers. Also on the card are the Group 3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1300m), Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m), Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m), Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m) and for the two milers the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) is another feature.
Run over a mile (1600m), the race offers $250,000 in total prize money to the three-year-olds in the field that face off under set weights and is usually the final spring run of the campaign for its contestants.
The latest edition of the Sandown Guineas ran on Saturday November 17, 2018.

Sandown Guineas Field
The Sandown Guineas field attracts a line-up of strong middle-distance performing three-year-olds looking to secure a final Group race win for the spring.
Most gallopers come into the Sandown Guineas field off a run two weeks before on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m).
Recent winners of the Carbine Club Stakes – Sandown Guineas double include Mahuta (2015), Paximadia (2013) and Kidnapped (2009). In 2016 the Carbine Club Stakes again proved the form to follow into the Sandown Guineas with Morton’s Fork improving on a lead-up second to win.
Another possible lead-up run is the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Derby Day, a race the 2015 runner-up Dal Cielo (6th) came off. The most recent Sandown Guineas winner to come off a Coolmore Stud Stakes run was Pressday (11th) in 2013.
The 2014 winner Petrology also won his lead-up run at Flemington, while that year’s runner-up Stratum Star came off a Carbine Club Stakes second. Two years earlier in 2012 the Carbine Club Stakes winner Lunar Rise ran second to Tatra in the Sandown Guineas, Tatra turning the tables after a Carbine Club Stakes second.
The nominations are taken the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday with the final field and barrier draw released on the Wednesday.
